IBM Cloud - The computer says "No"

Whilst trying to delete an IBM Cloud Object Storage (COS) instance from the command-line: -

ic resource service-instance-delete e8c79678-2ef8-4c7c-8a89-24ff2e85e691 --force

I saw: -

Deleting service instance e8c79678-2ef8-4c7c-8a89-24ff2e85e691 in resource group default under account DAVID HAY's Account as david_hay@uk.ibm.com...
FAILED
Cannot delete instance or alias, resource keys must first be deleted.


and couldn't quite work out to what it was referring.

Thankfully, the help text for that command had the answer: -

ic resource service-instance-delete --help
